Community Outreach at Ncemaneni

Hoërskool Richardsbaai is al die afgelope 5 jaar “renoster ambassadeurs” en besig met fondsinsameling en bewus- en omgewingsprojekte ter beskerming van renosters.

Kingsley Holgate, Afrika se bekende avonturis en filantroop, het op 2 Mei 2018 die 70-jarige teenwoordigheid van Land Rover in Suid Afrika en die 5 jarige viering van Project Art by Ncemaneni Primêre Skool, naby Shakaland gevier. Ter viering van “70 Jaar Land Rover” was daar ongeveer 20 verskeie voertuie van verskillende modelle, ouderdomme en hul entoesiastiese eienaars.

Kingsley Holgate het ons skool genooi om deel van hierdie feesviering te wees en het 10 van ons kunstigste leerders die voorreg gehad om daarheen te gaan. Hulle het die allermooiste skilderye van renosters gemaak en dit saamgeneem. Land Rover se gaste, joernaliste en fotograwe was stomgeslaan oor die puik kwaliteit van ons leerders se skilderye.

Upon arrival at the Ncemaneni Primary School we found about 400 learners standing in a long line on the soccer field, each holding a picture of a rhino which they had coloured in. Kingsley Holgate asked our learners to adjudicate and choose the best 20 pictures and messages. It was humbling to see how kindly and considerate our children communicated with the other learners. They also enthusiastically participated in the prize giving. The winning learners each received a pair of brand new shoes and a school bag.

We were invited to lunch at Shakaland and were taken on a cultural tour afterwards, something the learners really enjoyed.

The paintings are back at school. We intend to sell them in order to raise funds for Project Rhino.

Cancer Awareness Project

This project kicks off every year on September 1st. The trees in front of the school are draped in bright pink and every learner in the school gets the opportunity to pin down a card in remembrance of a cancer victim.

This project lasts until Heritage Day on September 24th and the ultimate goal is to make parents, learners and the community aware of the big K and those who survived and those who lost the battle.
